♫ Baby it’s Cold Outside! ♫

For the record, I’m not inviting any debates analyzing the lyrics and meaning of this song. It’s a fun song to sing with my husband while I play the ukelele, I love this Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel version from Elf, and the phrase pairs well with my card design. That is it.
